Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
I've always found stories from the point of view of something inanimate really fascinating; and this story is the warmest I've yet read. The Hufflepuff common room, to me, is my favorite. The Gryffindor one is the most familiar to us, yes, but it feels somewhat cold with all of the stonework, like the rest of Hogwarts. And the Slytherin dungeons are colder still. Ravenclaw has a nice common room, but it lacks the warmth that you've brought to life in the Hufflepuff common room. With the way that you've described it, I would rather be sorted into that House than into any of the others. Despite being underground just like the Slytherin common room and dormitories, I'm imagining shades of honey and gold instead, and with the barrel-like tunnels, all I can think about is Butterbeer. It seems like such a happy place, with the walls themselves literally affectionate towards the people roaming inside, with children known for being loyal and kind and hardworking mixing together. For the copper sconces and wall hangings and even the dust waiting for the arrival of children, for laughter and amusement, it just brings to mind a really merry place to pass your days. The renewed hope that it was almost September the first made me actually smile; never thought I would be happy for a room to have its wishes met.

You've made a stout Gryffindor really want to be a Hufflepuff! I suppose I can be a Gryffinpuff. :P

I really loved your language. It was elegant but soft, if that makes any sense. Like: But if you were ever curious as to what would happen if walls could speak, then I will enlighten you. There's a gentleness and earthiness to it that reminds me of Professor Sprout. Which I suppose explains why she was Sorted there. :)

Lovely one-shot!

Author's Response: Awww, thank you! XD

Yup, we've seen all the common rooms in the HP books except Hufflepuff's, so I thought it deserved some kind of mention! :D

*dies of happiness* Ahhh thank you so much for that compliment Sarah! ♥ I'm sure Hufflepuff students probably wish one of those barrel-like tunnels lead to the Three Broomsticks so that they can have Butterbeer! ;)

Thank you! When I was researching the room, I saw so much being said about cosy the 'Puffs found it and wanted to emphasise that cosiness. Ah I'm so glad you were able to empathize with the room! :D

Yes, you can! Hello there, Gryffinpuff! XD

I'm honoured that you loved my language, coming from such a talented author as yourself. My intention was for the room to be quite similar to Helga Hufflepuff- to have her emotions, in a way, since she did create that room, but there's no reason why those emotions shouldn't apply to Hufflepuff students / Heads. :)

Thank you! XD
